Bryan Reeder, where'd you meet her?
On a train.
She's your wife but your whole life is
just a game.
Do you ever stop to wonder
why she came?
Bryan, your whole life is just a game.

Looking for a new apartment
check the news.
Run into a stranger's face
on the avenue.
Started talking boy did he have
just the place for you.
Bryan, you were bound to win or lose.

I found a bottle of sounds at your place last night.
Your eyes are closed, your hands go in and you write.

Turning shapes in your new place
as you feel.
The shapes go round and play the sounds
Pythagoras reveals.
If you don't choose the sounds then are the
songs you write still real?
Bryan, spin a song, man, spin the wheel.

Bryan Reeder, why'd you meet her
on that train?
Maybe life's the card you pick when
nothing else remains.
Bryan, do you think your life would
be the same?
Bryan, your whole life is just a game.
